Ok listen up, the Bottom Forty Interior party is this Saturday Sep. 13 at Kremwerk and we have the amazing DJ/producer Vin Sol on hand to shake us down! All the Bottom Forty residents will be on hand to contribute their signature sounds to the night as well. What can you expect to hear you ask? Well first off, you can be assured that everything you’ll hear will be qual-i-tee.

I’ll give you a little sneak peek of what’s in my virtual record bag for this weekend. Starting with a track from Moiré out on the Werkdiscs imprint. It’s a moody and acid tinged jam that bounces around your head like an atom under the influence of hallucinogens. The B40 crew will surly serve it up propperly this Saturday!

Bonus! Here’s a mix Moiré put together for Fact Magazine last month.

Dee Dee Brave – My My Lover (Instrumental) / Track-a-Day Giveaway

The year was 1990 and house music was thriving. Occasionally a midst all the Top 40 house mixes generated by the big labels, we DJ’s got the obscure small indie release, Dee Dee Brave’s “My My Lover” was in the later. Going to the Record Pool once a week was a real treat as you never knew what was going to be in your box.

This unreleased instrumental mix is one of those underground web downloads that we all need to have in our library, generously shared by Kerri Chandler. House DJ’s worldwide have been known to drop this in their sets. There’s a bit of a Liz Torres feel to this record in the vocal version and her sultry cry for, My My Lover.

We are giving away a track each day this week, leading up to our Decibel opening showcase with Ejeca, Pillowtalk, Riff-Raff and Pavone this Wednesday at Chop Suey (Get your tixxx here!).

Pepe Bradock “Deep Burnt” / Track-a-Day Giveaway

Bottom Forty is so thrilled to be included in the upcoming Decibel Festival showcase with Ejeca, Pillowtalk, Riff-Raff and Pavone that we’re giving some free downloads away!

This is a track I’ve been obsessed about for a while now…a glorious 90’s house record with an ethereal sample from Freddie Hubbard’s “Little Sunflower.” When I found that the item was vinyl only, and Discogs was listing copies going for $70-105 each! OW! So after whining about it on Facebook, my friend Mark O’Brien from San Francisco sent me his record as a way to extend the Burning Man concept of unexpected gifting! And big thanks to Chris Savenetti as well for the vinyl rip…feel the love? I do. Let me pay the love forward with you too…

It’s now only 5 days away so secure your tickets over at Strangertickets. Enjoy, and RSVP to our showcase! She will TURN IT.
